In conversation with WBFO's Mike Desmond, Maccalupo says the work was intended to be a novel.

The writing process instead produced the short story "The Umbrella," a work the author calls "a kind of macabre story."

Maccalupo also discusses how he develops his stories and his plans for his next novel, "The Allentown Murders."
